Are you a Todoist user who also uses Flock for your project management? Do you wish you had better cross-functionality between the two apps? If so, there’s only one thing left for you (wait for it) to do—integrate your Todoist app into Flock messenger.
When you integrate Todoist into Flock your ability to better visualize and organize all of your team’s tasks becomes an indispensable element to your daily workflow.

How to integrate Todoist into Flock
Flock's deep integration with Todoist lets you create tasks directly from within Flock using the simple slash command: /todoist. You can also set due dates, allocate labels, or tag tasks to specific projects.
2. Click on Add New Configuration.
3. Authenticate your Todoist account.
4. Once you’ve authenticated your account, create a Todoist task in Flock.
How to create a Todoist task in Flock
In the Message Editor, type the slash command /todoist [task] and hit Enter.
NOTE: The slash command also accepts special parameters. For example, if you wish to set a due date for the task, label it, and then add it to a specific project, you would type the following:
/todoist [task] #[date & time] @[label] +[project]
NOTE: When you create a task using the slash command /todoist [task] without specifying parameters, it is automatically added to your Todoist Inbox.
You can also create a task from a message using Flock's message actions. To do this, hover over any message, expand the dropdown by clicking on the down arrow and select Add to Todoist.
After the task has been added you should receive a bot notification declaring sweet victory!
Boom! You've just created your first Todoist task in Flock and now your integration is officially complete.
In order to get teams communicating and collaborating more effectively, the tools we use need to work more efficiently—together. Flock enables teams using Todoist to accelerate overall productivity by enhancing project management functionality without ever having to leave a conversation in Flock.
